Born today, you enjoy seeing things grow -- whether those things be plants, animals, people, ideas, projects or what have you! There is nothing you enjoy more than to begin with a seed and nurture it through all stages of development until it has fulfilled its destiny and matured into the finest example of its kind imaginable. The tricky thing for you, however, is to remember that you, too, are very much like such a seed, and you too require the same kind of nurturing, care and attention if you're going to fulfill your destiny.
You can be quite forceful, and yet this outward show often disguises an unusual sensitivity deep beneath the surface. Something that you do not like to admit, much less demonstrate, is that you can be something of a cryer. When your emotions are stirred, you can quickly be moved to tears.
Also born on this date are: Queen Elizabeth II of England; Tony Romo, football player; James McAvoy, actor; Iggy Pop, singer; Tony Danza, actor; Charlotte Bronte, author; Andie MacDowell, actress; Anthony Quinn, actor; John Muir, naturalist.

THURSDAY, APRIL 22
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may be guilty of doing the very thing you are criticizing another for -- but are the situations really comparable? Be honest with yourself.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may not agree with the way someone is handling a situation, but it's certainly not your place to intercede -- yet. Be patient.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You'll be introduced to something new and different today, but is it wise to express just how different it is to you? Wait awhile.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- An issue arises today that pushes your buttons, but now is not the time to react as you might normally react. You must employ self-control.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Agreement is not the point today, though you may choose to work toward agreement as you debate various points under discussion.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- The practicality of a certain strategy may escape you today -- until it is driven home by someone who has your best interests at heart.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You mustn't shy away from that which promises to be more difficult than you're used to; only by leaning in will you learn a key lesson.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You're eager for discovery to take you in a new direction. This can happen today, but only if you're willing to give up something secure.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may find yourself at odds with someone who usually stands with you, no matter the issue. Today, however, something new is at work.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're in the mood for tales of success and triumph, and today you can add your own to the canon -- though it may be important only to you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can find new meaning in routine events today, in part because you have begun to look at things from a different point of view. Keep it up!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You mustn't repeat yourself today; once you've finished with one task, you must turn away from it and try something that is very different.
